Playing Catch Up - Collage Friday on Monday

Every have one of those weeks where your head was just too FULL of "stuff" to put it all down on paper (or computer)?  That was me last week...I didn't even make the Collage Friday in time.   It was a rough week with the children - chalking it up to the full moon!  

Zachary finally got his cast off and is released to participate in soccer and gym class. We do have a splint he needs to wear and that also makes him more confident.  Thanks for all the prayers everyone!  

The weather is beautiful today and suppose to be tomorrow then turning colder!  Not quite as cold as our friends in Minnesota and Montana as snow is making it's appearance this week there!  (jealous!)

We are having fun with our OSMO games, board games and plugging along with school.  If you have an IPAD and am not familiar with OSMO, you should check it out!

I have been getting a little crafting done here and there. These Snowy Owls are easy and cute!  Using a pine cone and some cotton balls. Easy, right!  Thanks to Kim from my church who turned me on to these cuties!

Molly continues to be hooked on Art for Kids (thank you Mary)


We have been able to get together with our friends from Bricks 4 Kidz a few times since October. Tomorrow (Veterans Day) they children are going to a three hour (drop off) workshop - MINECRAFT theme with the Bricks for Kidz people!

We have 1 game left for soccer for the season. Sammie is on fire this year...averaging 3 goals per game!

Off to a Bricks 4 Kidz program....enjoy the day and don't forget to make a difference in someone's life today!

Shining the Spotlight - Finding Home Farms

Today at Woodwater Farmhouse, I am sharing with you another company that I feel you should know about.  

I first learned about Finding Home Farms on Instagram. Little did I know, Laura, one of the owners of Finding Home Farms, lives local to me, in the Hudson Valley of New York. 
You can read all about Laura and her lovely family at her blog about page. 
 I immediately knew that I had to try their products in my home. I have grown to love their products (shop), Laura's sense of style and her blog. 
Can we just stop now and talk about their packaging first.  It speaks to you before even trying the products. Simple, organic and calming.  Isn't it just darling with the little dove.
sigh....insert smile

I love her blog tagline - Gather Create Connect - that says it all, there in three little words. YOU already know before going forward that you are in for a special treat. 
I am only going to speak to a few of their many products because these are what we use in our home with our family.

Happy New Year and welcome back to our first
Shining the Spotlight
for 2017! 

 I hope you all enjoyed your holidays and are settled back into your routines.

Today I am so excited to introduce you to a company that has such a wonderful purpose behind it!  Jessica Griffis is a 17 year old college student paying her way through college selling Hilltop Design simple, natural and homemade products.  Jessica was also home educated!!! (dear to my heart)

Ya'll know I am all about the package as first impressions are so important. Don't you just love this sticker/stamp that she had on her package!  Spoke to me before I even opened it up and smelled the freshness of the products. 

I was impressed with the smell of the products, not overwhelming and artificial smelling at all. I felt safe using them on myself and my children. 

There are lip balms, lotions, scrubs, body butter, bath bombs and more.  The scrubs rival any other name brand and the bath bombs are THE BOMB!   The products are very …

Today at Woodwater Farmhouse, I am sharing with you a company that  not only meets but exceeds my expectation.  In service and product. 
Rustic Honey

The owner's name is Lauren Moran and I can see why her shop is so successful!  Rustic Honey is a lifestyle boutique. They offer women's clothing and accessories, children's wear, home goods, vintage finds, handmade gifts and more!  Let's look at this business card first. First impressions are everything in my book.  (I did not get a picture of the adorable chalkboard wrapping that the box was wrapped in but it was so cute!)

It's cute, to the point and shows her style.

Not even talking about the farmhouse towel that I ordered yet...but come on a hand written note to me personally and has all her social media outlets on there also. Clever!  On the opposite side of this personalized note is the cutest quote and picture. 

Ok I am getting to the towel I's HUGE and adorable. The printing is clear and impressive!�…
